When I turned 24 I decided that I would give the whole having fresh flowers around the house thing a go, and secretly wished for my birthday Luke would buy me some as a surprise birthday gesture. I hadn't told him that I had had a change of heart, and he had ordered some for my birthday all on his own. That birthday I got a couple of bunches of flowers and my mind was made up forever, flowers are okay! So each week (well, when we remember), Luke & I buy a bunch of fresh flowers for our kitchen table. Luke has mentioned in the past that he was secretly glad I had come around to flowers because he actually likes having them around the house. Everybody wins!
